I'll be brief because Open Source Video ate my review.
Dictators is a "teaser", it fails to flesh out all details, but all supporting details would require an 8 hour movie.
Alex does back up all his statements, if not in one movie, in another. Sometimes truth IS stranger than fiction. It's weird to the un-initiated, but many other authors and filmmakers cover similar facts, with more documents and footnotes that are too boring for the average American. As someone said about the Warren Commission report, they knew it would fly because "Americans don't read".
1. There IS an Illuminati. By any other name.
2. The names are the Bilderburg Group, the Tri-Lateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR), the Federal Reserve System (not Federal, no Reserve), and their adjunct elite power and PR groups. It does not have to be "secret German families". Maybe it was, maybe it is. That's irrelevant, to some degree.
3. This "Illuminati" IS connected by long standing friendships and relationships of Power, Privilege, and often Blood (both spilled blood and family-ties blood). Sounds a lot like the Illuminati.
4. There is plenty of evidence that Bush (the organization more than the man) stole the election. Jones covers that, and he didn't steal it from Palast. Palast is his ally. There is also evidence that Kerry (the organization AND the man)was complicit in that theft. He certainly did nothing to prevent this or stop it.
5. Right. If Kerry won, it would have made little difference. The President and Congress do not really "make" policy. On many levels, the election itself certainly DOES appear to be a stage-managed event, as does the entire government system.
6. I didn't place to much relevance on Skull+Bones when someone mentioned it, until I viewed the Bohemian Grove movie. They DO engage in rituals which can only be described as weird and satanic (small 's'). The line in the play about "rub your eyes with carrion" (dead flesh) (to see more clearly) got me, along with carrying the screaming body of Care to it's fiery demise.
Is it relevant? Other people confirm that S&B is an incubator for top US leaders, especially CIA.
I would recommended a movie that hits from the side, JFK-2, as an opener. It hits from the side, not head on. It features South Park graphics and is humorous. If you buy half the evidence presented there -- the big picture of massive big scale involvement of top government and US media, then you're ready to move on. JFK-2 coins the term "anti-conspiracy nut" because at a certain point the insistence on "no conspiracy" is completely shredded.
If you get that, then move on to other stuff by Jones, Ruppert, or even Uncovered published by MoveOn. Yes, that MoveOn features a movie starring 20 top CIA and conservative Foreign Service people. It's pro-war, but not pro-Iraq. The point is, this collection of people is unimpeachable. They CANNOT be called anti-American, or partisan. Not ALL of them. Well, they could be called that, but it is obvious spin.
